Updated Aug 16, 2018 | Same topic: Highlights of the Week

What car does your favorite Filipino loveteam own?

Filipinos are big fans of “teleserye” or Filipino TV series – every night, families and sometimes including their friends or neighbors will gather in someone’s house to watch their favorite teleserye and sometimes you’ll hear them scream or react violently in a certain scene.

I could say that when Filipinos get “addicted” to a teleserye there’s no night that we will miss an episode, and there’s no way that we won’t be updated on our favorite actors and actresses.

As fans, Filipinos are curious about what’s going on with their favorite actors and actresses lives every day – and the celebrities are also kind enough to share it with their fans. One thing that I’m sure fans would most likely want to know and personally, I am curious about too is what cars do these famous celebrity own? What cars do they use to travel and take them to and from work?

If you are getting curious too, let’s go ahead with and take a peek in some of the popular Pinoy celebrities’ choice of ride.

1. Alden Richards

The “Pambansang Bae” who became popular in the all-time hit noon time show Eat Bulaga, alongside with his on-screen other half Maine Mendoza, has quite a car collection. He started with a second hand vehicle when his career is just starting to kick off and later on upgraded to a Mistubishi Pajero and now he owns a black Jaguar XE.

He says that it was one of his dreams to own a sports car and he bought one as a reward to himself for all his hard work.

Of course comes with Alden Richards, the “Pambansang Bae” is his on-screen partner, Maine “Yayadub” Mendoza. One can’t be without the other, so we’re also going to take a peek on what Maine chose for her ride.

During her Yayadub stint, she was able to buy her own Hyundai Starex Limousine. She bought in on June 2016.

3. Liza Soberano

Liza is one of the most beautiful faces in Philippine show business. She’s known for her role as Agnes Calay, a strawberry farmer in the hit teleserye Forevermore which aired in 2014, which also stars her on-screen love Enrique Gil. This teleserye launched both their careers and they both soared high with non-stop movies and endorsements.

Reaping the benefits of her hardwork, Liza bought a Hyundai Starex van that has customized interiors that seems to be very comfortable so she could get a good rest while driving to and from tapings.

Much like Maine and Alden, Liza also comes with Enrique Gil, her on screen sweetheart. Enrique also became popular when he landed the role of Xander Grande, heir to a hotel empire in the hit teleserye, Forevermore. He has quite a car collection too, which includes a red Dodge Nitro and a Chevrolet Camaro 2009, which is the exactly the same model as “Bumblebee” in the hit movie Transformers.

He said that his car investments are his much deserved rewards.
